Captain Elisha Bangs’ Replica Profiled on Cape Cod TV

August 5, 2013

The Latham Charity Playhouse built by Cape Associates has garnered considerable media attention all over the Cape this summer. Now you can learn about the charming structure (10’ long, 5’ deep, and 8’high) on television! BothLower Cape TV, channel 99 and Cape Cod Community Media Center/Mid Cape TV, channel 17 are now airing informational segments featuring Gerry Desautels, VP of Development at Latham Centers and Matt Cole, President and CEO of Cape Associates. The two joined forces to film the special with the Lower Cape TV crew. In one take they captured all of the elements of the house–the beautifully replicated architecture, the community involvement, and the extraordinary students and adult residents of Latham Centers in which it benefits.    Shooting for this playhouse special took place on the joint lawn of She Sells – The Ocean Edge Shop and JoMama’s on 6A in Brewster where the playhouse resides on view for the summer.
Lower Cape TV  and Mid Cape TV will air the playhouse segments throughout the day at various times until October 21st, when the playhouse will find its new home at Latham’s 4th Annual Charity Golf Classic at idyllic Ocean Edge Resort & Golf Club. The winning raffle ticket will be drawn at the Golf Classic’s Awards Dinner Banquet along with four runner up prize tickets.
